RGM-79FC Striker Custom ‘Early Type’

Due to the previous loses to an surprised attack by Delaz Fleet in Australia base. The Earth Federation Forces have decided to tighten up the security including upgrade its aging GM series and create new range weapons to counter the remaining Zeon remnant forces hiding on earth.
One of the chosen series is RGM-79F GM Striker. While the mobile suit performance has upgraded showing vastly improved with outstanding test result on the missions. This is still an early type Striker Custom version using the remaining Gundam RX-79 (G) head and same GM equipment's which originally are not design for range combat. So the Federation made a specialized design interchangeable range shotgun and modified chaff backpack defense against incoming missiles.
About the Build
The work was originally plan to make a minor improvement on the kit. Somehow I lose the visor and use the Gundam head as a replacement instead from the ‘Gundam Ground War Set’. Since I also already finished sanding and prepare for spraying. I see no point wasting more time on the mod because I might accidently damaging it.
There weren’t many changes to the kit except testing new modifies articulation in the shoulder using Hobby Base Roll Swing Joint. I‘m not sure how much does it really improved. But it allows more movable area on the shoulder for posing. This will be tested on the HG1/100 Seed VS Astray line in the future because of them are fixed point.
I also added small armor to the pilot hatch as well as chaff pod to the backpack using Kotobukiya option parts. Well, the GM Striker was meant for close combat, logically thinking he needs to interrupt incoming missile attacks. That was a nice addition to have that on it.

I do have other plan to include combat knife on the backpack as well. Too bad I am suck at working on weapon holder mod. So I just give him a shotgun rather making further complication. But the interchangeable equipment's are really great. I recommend getting one of this for your plastic kit.

Brunet SMTP Server Under Global Blacklist?

Based on my finding, yes it is. I already started noticing this issue starting last year December when my users starting to complain about their email messages not reaching several existing contacts. Slowly things get even uglier between February and March, the messages would deliver into junk in Outlook automatically. The 3rd party email like Gmail services follow, sending them into SPAM folder. Even the Barracuda Spam Firewall sees as threat and start rejecting. As far I know, my company experiences the worst when the email messages almost completely go AWOL in 3rd week last month. The 4th week, the messages all stuck in the queue for unknown reason and getting relay messages. We found out the local domain name suddenly no longer working and tried using as temporary solution. It didn’t work either. In the end, we had to convince the management to purchase 3rd party SMTP service to get the whole thing running. It’s not like we did not investigate the physical server, M…

Guide on Registering Brunei Citizenship Examination (Update#1)

I never thought registering Brunei Citizenship examination are really fucking inconvenienced. Worst, I don't see blogger write about it either in the web search telling us how and what to bring. So to make this easy, I decided to write the guide for my future reference and hopefully able to help you fellow PR. Avoid Waste of TimeFirst of all, people may told you to register in the capital usually way faster. It's true but my question is, do you really need to be that hurry? Bahasa Brunei are not easy to learned (even most local Malay) and remembering every details of this country takes lots of effort studying. Unless you already a good confidence in speaking and writing, you may go ahead. Still, if you live in Belait or Tutong or even Temburong district. My suggestion go for the nearest and shortest route to the immigration building for registration. The reason I recommend that way are nobody knows when the law and rules will change every years in Brunei (as well announced b…

Brunei Has a Porno Celebrity?

That was really unexpected information found in Wikipedia and surprise to know we have a porno celebrity in our country. Her name is Jayna Oso, was born in Brunei and raised at Hawaii according to the Wiki. She is really quite popular in the states and not to mention hardcore porn star.“This Photo belong to Shiroi Kaze”I don’t really know if that is true after I decided to look through her profile in the official porn site. It somehow didn’t state that she was from Brunei instead they only mention about Malaysia. I think this might be a mistake or something and probably her mother was Malaysian. It just my guess and only she herself know the answer. Well, if you want to dug deeper, you might want to visit her My Space and drop her a question.
